I have been a resident of the North Shore for over twenty years and am a parent to two children currently enrolled in the NVSD. When my children were in elementary school, I got involved in the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) and assumed the various executive roles over the years, including PAC Chair. I then became a member of the North Vancouver District PAC (DPAC) and served for three years, including two as DPAC Vice Chair. I was able to accomplish a lot in these roles and felt I was really making a difference. I wanted to continue to do more for the community and students, and in 2018, after much encouragement by many to run for School Board Trustee, I began my journey.
